The other day I was talking to Eirah about the time when we lived on Long Island and how we used to see lots of praying mantises. Since we moved to the Hudson Valley we haven’t seen any. Yesterday we were walking through a mini mall in Peekskill and what should we come across…the pictures don’t do it justice. It was easily 4-5 inches long.
